Normally I'm no Tesco cheerleader. But west of the A3 they've nothing this side of the river till beyond Kennington Cross.
There's a Sainsbury's on Borough High Street
itself, but that's it till near Waterloo. Apart from the M&S on Southwark Street
there's no other big-chain presence that I can think of as I sit here off Southwark Bridge Road
Instead, this slice of Southwark has too long been captive to Costcutter. Stock poor to middling, staff indifferent to rude, prices a whack above the odds. Marauders of Tesco, do your worst!
